By now you all probably know that I’m a big fan of social media. I love the way it can connect so many people from so many walks of life in just a few seconds. It’s one of the ways I made one of my most enjoyable business connections (with Dawn Dickson of FOOH through LinkedIn) and the way I connect with my friends and family. So when it comes to inspiration and knowledge, it’s no surprise that I turn to social media for ideas. This time, in search of inspiring business women -women who provide useful insight as to how they gained their success and maintain it – I turned to Twitter. There are so many successful women on Twitter, it was easy to put together a list of great names to look to for motivation. This is just a sampling of the many great ones on there. So, from influential leaders to creative minds that’ll leave you feeling inspired and wanting more, here’s a roundup of the top business women to follow on Twitter.
